Him: I don’t date black women. It’s just a preference.
Me: Based on what?
Him: Nothing, it’s just how I feel.
Me: Impossible, deliberate aversions come from somewhere.
Him: Its just a preference, that’s all.
Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.
Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?
Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.
Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?"

How hard is it to tag fucking pornographic shit! It takes a second out of your day and means people don’t get triggered by the disturbing way that dude fully ignored her withdrawn consent. Ugh.
This also goes for people who outright REFUSE to tag potentially triggering posts because it “interferes with their right to freedom of expression" on their blog. Firstly, "tagging" a post is NOT the same as banning people from posting on their blogs. Secondly, it might mean absolutely nothing to you, but it can cause serious emotional distress/damage to another …something that could be easily avoided if you bothered to take less than a second of your precious time to tag a post.
